Just sent in my questionnaire. I am a sucker for stuff framed in hoops.
This is the view from my computer where I spend a ridiculous amount of time on Craftster, Flickr, and Etsy looking at all of the crafty goodness. I only have hoops with my embroidery on there now, definitely need some fresh stuff from someone else to add!
And for the beginners, you can create a beautiful piece with a simple design and simple stitches. I have done this for a little while now, but I still tend to stick with basic stitches on my stuff. I think it's better to know how to do a few stitches really well than a ton of stitches with mediocrity.
